There is nothing worse than a cranky baby on the day of your photo shoot. Instead of getting all of those cute pics of your child's adorable smile, you get tears, red eyes, screaming, and frowns. But this can be avoided if you do the following:

1. Make sure your child is fed

2. Make sure your child is well rested

3. Make sure your child's diaper is fresh

4. Make sure you have your child's favorite toy on hand

5. Pick a familiar location for the photos
